Very interesting look at location as a factor in the beer world and how the online universe helps level the playing field. Brewforia sounds like a magical place. If I ever find myself in Boise, it'll definitely be on top of the list (what else is there besides the potatoes, am I right?) Nice job guys
Really Good Listening
If you want to hear interesting, accessible discussions of topics in the world of craft beer and whiskey, or if you've ever wanted to learn a little more about either, this is for you. It's good conversation that doesn't get caught up in jargon, mixed with some solid storytelling and laid-back, entertaining humor.
It's also a good example of how appreciations for different things can influence and heighten each other. If you're a fan of craft beer, this will get you thinking about whiskey in new ways, and vice versa. This is definitely more than one of those podcasts of people drinking and talking about it while you sit there. Like any good media, it starts with the subject (beer and whiskey) and more times than not ends up being about culture, hobbies, brotherhood, and the rest of the best things in life.
This Podcast is making me thirsty!
Two brothers separated by a couple thousand miles, yet brought together by a mutual love for beer and whiskey! Well, one is more of a beer guy, while the other one is more of a whiskey guy, but it's these differences that make this podcast worth listening to. They also play off each other really well (like brothers???), and manage to bounce back and forth between beer and whisky talk while managing to keep the conversation interesting, informative, and funny. Well done Boys!
